Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.
When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.
It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.
There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.
It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
